"My main studio process is Mokuhanga (Japanese woodblock printing ) which allows me to print the woodblock with watercolour. However on occasion I will combine other elements with the mokuhanga. Here i have combined two elements of mokuhanga which I have chine colled on to a heavier paper. Through the process of pasting these elements together I have over printed with three etching plates. This has merged painterly marks along with a delicate etched line. At the bottom I have also chine colled (pasted) a page from an old japanese lined notebook. This has introduced the strong blue line underpining the print. Throughout the work I have added small nuances with a graphite or coloured pencil. The monoprint is from a small series of works related to observing the sea ."
